Scarlet Nexus, the “brain punk” action role-playing game from Bandai Namco, will come out on June 25. It’ll be available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.

First revealed during an Inside Xbox event last May, Scarlet Nexus features psionic powers, mutants, and graphics straight out of the Tales series, all set in a dense, techno-futuristic city — y’know, the good stuff.

Beyond the main game, a Scarlet Nexus anime series will follow later in the winter. It’ll be produced by Sunrise, the venerable studio that’s done work on, well, basically everything.
